ME 550 Flush Diaphragm, Capacitive Ceramic Pressure Sensor

Discover the ME 550 Pressure Sensors, utilising capacitive technology for unparalleled precision in pressure measurements. Built with a ceramic base plate and flush diaphragm, the sensor’s capacitance variation captures accurate readings. A screen-printed moving capacitor plate on the flush ceramic diaphragm enables direct exposure to the measured medium. The special filter (PCS) safeguards the vent hole from humidity and dirt. ME 550’s wide 32.4mm diameter excels in measuring ultra-low pressures down to 60 mbar, while maintaining high burst pressure for reliability. With excellent chemical resistance from Al2O3 ceramic, additional protection is rarely needed. Gauge or absolute versions are available to cater to your needs. Elevate your pressure sensing capabilities with the advanced ME 550.
